I am trying to setup FastCGI and PHP-FPM so that a php file can be executed as the owner of the file. I am trying to replace SuPHP with FastCGI and fpm. Earlier, I had folders with different owners and groups. Each group had www-data as a member as well. When any php file was run using the browser, it was run as the owner of the file. So if a file was owned by user A (Group A - www-data and A as members), it was executed as user A
shell_exec('whoami') => return A
Now, I installed fastcgi and have configured it to run PHP files.
Here is my php5-fpm.conf file
<IfModule mod_fastcgi.c> AddHandler php5-fcgi .php Action php5-fcgi /php5-fcgi Alias /php5-fcgi /usr/lib/cgi-bin/php5-fcgi FastCgiExternalServer /usr/lib/cgi-bin/php5-fcgi -socket /var/run/php5-fpm.sock -pass-header Authorization </IfModule>
My issue is, now when I run the same file which is owned by A,
shell_exec('whoami') => return www-data
Is it possible to run the php file as the owner using FastCGI and fpm (like with suPHP)? If so, how do I do that?
